AFRAID TO TOUCH THE TARIFF The government at Ottawa appoints commissions to inquire into the needs of agriculture and these commissions do not make any report, in fact there Is little to show that.they even take evidence.

Sir George Foster proposed a trade and commerce conference but seem- ingly agriculture was to be overlook- ed. There is no need to worry about tiiat now because tne conference is off for some reason or other. How- ever, the memorandum prepared to be land was to make farming aitrac- j and profitable by the above rery means. And it Trssn't any use to be told that the only way to attract capital for agricultural purposes was to make the investment worth while by allowing the farmer to secure his implements as cheaply as possible and to sell his goods on the most profitable In short, it was impossible tor the commission to suggest remedies for the economic problems whicli they uaed in seeking information tor that to proposed conference is But it will be evident by a, glance I at tie subjects to be discussed-that j such proposals as the larger markets j and lower tariff would not be in keep- ing with the purpose of the conven- tion.
